"Unearthed my old Capture 4 - do I need to update?" Thu 29-Nov-12 08:43 AM by D2xer
Don't laugh - me and my D2x and D2hs have got along fine for years now without any software more recent than PSE6 8>O
I did however buy Nikon Capture 4 'some time ago', and tonight (wooden you know) I wanted to use the Camera Control feature for some macro bellows work.
So I installed Cap7 on my new Win7 laptop, and downloaded whatever updates were available. The editing software opened up OK... but the Camera Control function would not open or even recognize my D2x 8>/ ??
(I tried running it in WinXP compatability mode with no luck.)
So I'm guessing I need to upgrade/update to Capture NX? 8>/
Or, is there some way to still use Capture 4 with Win7? (I can hear you laughing again! 8>)
(PS - If I do need to upgrade, what's the best route and 'how far' do I need to go? I only need the use of Camera Control.)

Thanks Clive. Yes, I'll keep using NC4. It's only v. 4.2.1, but decent enough. Especially now that you need to buy TWO separate software packages to accomplish the same thing(!) (I see that Nikon doesn't even support Camera Control Pro for Win7, but offers a 'workaround'.)
